    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Life Time Fitness.

    Interview

    I applied on the website and within a few days I received an email requesting an interview. I called and set up the interview and went in. There was a group of people and we had to swim and then individual talk to the management. We discussed past experience and how you would benefit Lifetime. You also had to swim 100m relay. After the meeting they had us wait and then and there I was told I had a job. They gave me a packet and told me I need to memorize the mission statement. I set an appointment for the second meeting at that point. I came in for the second meeting and spoke to someone in the HR department, I recited the mission statement and then answered questions about what I was interested in gaining from Lifetime. I was put into the system at that time and they also set up my free membership.

    Member Services Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Life Time Fitness in June 2014.

    Interview

    Casual interview first, then an interview with the department head and assistant department head. That interview was very specific, "tell me about a time when you had to deal with a co-worker with whom you did not get along", "how do you live out a healthy way of life", "how would you deal with an upset member?". Very pointed questions and it is great to have examples from other jobs or situations ready. Last interview was supposed to be with a general manager but they were in the middle of a turn over so I interviewed with a member engagement manager. He asked me my three strengths and weaknesses and then asked me to recite the mission/vision. Know it word for word.

    Interview Questions

    • as always, "list your three weaknesses". Not a very insightful question for an interviewee   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiation, corporate sets the rate and there is hardly any wiggle room, maybe 50 cents.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Life Time Fitness (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Life Time Fitness.

    Interview

    I was an internal candidate and did not have an interview. I just applied online. The ADH I replaced had a similar experience. It appears that for leadership positions, It's mainly political and every step in the process is just a formality.

    Interview Questions

    • Did you finish your application? Let me know when you do, ok?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiations. I was told once I completed training, I would be considered for a raise. I still have not seen an increase to my pay.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Life Time Fitness.

    Interview

    I was an internal candidate, so I only had a formality with the Department Head to go over new responsibilities as an assistant department head if I was approved by the GM of the club. In the interview the GM went over my college major, since I am still a college student. He also discussed three things that I would change or work on in my department and why, as well as where I see myself in one, five, and maybe ten years from now. Overall it was a very good experience.

    Interview Questions

    • We're looking for our Assistant positions to be able to progress on to a Department Head position wherever they are needed. In your current situation, how do you see yourself playing into that role?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I have been unable to negotiate a higher initial pay rate, however I was able to negotiate a raise at the start of june.
